is prohibited from finding out what the fbi is doing, maybe somebody needs to read the constitution, the fbi is part of the department of yesterday. they actually work for the president. there is a lot here in the way the administration has handled this that i think warrants further investigation as well. >> greta: how do people who think this is an important topic -- or many important topics, how do they convince those who say, well, it's just political? how do they convince people that these things really matter in. >> the most important point is remembering that with four dead americans on september 11, other official americans and american private citizens throughout the middle-east remain at risk. until we fully understand as a nation what happened on september 11, we can't possibly take adequate steps or formulate policies to protect americans who might be at risk. i have never seen this as political. maybe that's just because i used to work in the state department and see the risk that -- that our people have all around the world. but the notion that you can passively wait for an inte
happened in benghazi from representatives of the state department, national counterterrorism center, fbi, john mccain did not get any of the classified briefing, did not get any of that information or questions answered by any of those people because he skipped the briefing and instead went and yelled at tv cameras about how he couldn't get any information. and when a cnn producer had the good sense to ask senator mccain about why he was yelling about not getting information instead of attending the briefing on his committee where the information was being given out, then he just yelled some more. >> our ted barrett caught up with the senator earlier today and wanted to know why he didn't go to that briefing and to say the least, it did not go well. listen to what happened. >> because i have the right as a senator to have no comment and who the hell are you to tell me i can or not? i'm not giving you an answer. for the tenth time. >> who the hell are you? this is all going on while john mccain continues to try to make a case that this scandal that he can't get any information about, can'
house because he was under investigation in the fbi and his fate was in the white house hand? that question was not asked. >> i think one thing we need to remember here, this is know about an affair or a salacious story. this is four men who are dead, four more thans are dead and the united states government, under president obama did not address the issue, did not send help when this was asked. i think it is very concerning that after an election, all of this information comes out and we do need the questions answer. good luck getting it from an administration that is the least transparent administration in modern american history. >> sean: there are a coup of things with general petraeus who will testify tomorrow behind closed doors. general petraeus wants to clarify some things. and in the washington post, i believe, petraeus was at odds with his bosses, prior to this because he felt that the intelligence community was being portrayed in an unfavorable light and he wanted to correct that record. apparently, there was conflict there. now, he also knows that the administrati
to the fbi and the authorities or there are some ceos that don't want to do that because they don't want their customers to know they've been hacked. >> it's a hard decision. i don't think the right answer is that you have to go to the fbi in every single case. but what ceos should recognize is there are some people in the government who can help out. the fbi has a lot of capacity and they could help mitigate the overall risk to some of these cyber intrusions. department of homeland security with the department of defense can be helpful. usually in one of the attacks the first attack you discover is not really what you should be worried about. meanwhile all of your intellectual property flows out the door for two years or secret information about transactions you may be working on is going to another country or another firm. if you see one incident it's worth it as a leader to take it sear yuzly and probably go to the fbi. >> should you assume everything in your e-mail is being read by somebody else? >> you should not assume everything is being read by the government. we of course take t
concerned, jenna, by the thought that the cia and the fbi and our entire intelligence gathering community, if you believe them, can't figure out for 10 days whether there was a demonstration or not. i saw, i saw the video yesterday. it was very clear there wasn't a demonstration. there were people they could have interviewed. i think that is a an important question to ask. why don't you ask people that were there that were in germany the next day. we got people out of there to germany the next day. what they saw and said there was no demonstration. don't use that as the background for what happened. jenna: just for clarity the video you're mentioning is video of the attack in benghazi? >> it was surveillance video that wasn't initially available. we shouldn't have to have a video to show there was no demonstration going on. there were people that could have been asked. it shouldn't have taken 10 days for for the intelligence community to find out that something didn't happen. jenna: senator, talk about the impressions that you got from the hearing. this of course being closed and classifi
was concerned, we went through a timeline. we went through representatives, the cia, and the fbi, and i think when members were able to see the time line, the sense was still the same. you have a group of extremists who took it vantage of the situation, and we lost four american lives. there were representatives from al qaeda and other groups. you had individuals with the ability to shoot mortars, and i think it shows it was a terrorist attack of sophistication. whether these people gain expertise from being in benghazi or being out there and fighting from that process, that is one thing. we are still focusing on the people who did it. we need to bring them to justice and make sure how this event occurred. so we learn from this so the american people will be protected in the future. >> what is the status of the fbi investigation? >> investigation on what? >> no lead or no witnesses to talk to? >> i think we need to have them work with the intelligence committee to attempt to identify who coordinated the attacks, and i think this is an ongoing investigation trying to get the intelligence commu
